Finding the Right Man and Van Can Be Difficult
Finding the Right Man and Van Can Be Difficult
You will likely have used a man and van, but there are still many things to learn about how to find a decent service for your needs. There can be many ways in which you would want to use a man and van, whether for moving a flat, or just a small amount of equipment, it does not really matter. The same rules apply, as you will find that the differences between services can make things much more difficult as you look to keep costs as low as possible, and value high. It can really help to be in the know on the differences between different types of man and van service, so that you are well aware of what to look out for when you are looking around for a decent service for your needs. There is no mistaking that it is a bit of a jungle out there, with so many differing services, and various characters. Having a look on the internet will bring up lots of results straight away, so have a read through the following tips to get a feel for how to approach the situation as it comes. In order to ensure that you are getting the best price it is pretty essential that you get a look at how van services charge, and how this relates to your own move. You will no doubt notice that there are a couple of different types of charging systems in place, that will affect your decision a certain amount. The most common type of service will require a fee per hour, so that you pay for every hour that you are with the van service. This will usually take in to account the cost of lifting, fuel and getting there and back so that you are not fearing any extra costs. In this situation you must ensure that you ask about extras up front. Do not presume that you are all clear, as you may well get a nasty surprise when it comes to paying at the end of the job. Some services will ask for extra money for lifting and even per flight of stairs, or per mile for fuel, simply so that their advertised price is a lot less than that of the competition. You should have a good idea of how far the drive is, and how long the whole job should take in order that you know what you will be paying, as otherwise things can get difficult. You will likely know a little about the traffic in your area, but if you travel on a day when you get stuck, then your costs could rocket unexpectedly, so try to avoid such things.Going with a man and van service that requires a flat fee for the whole job means that you can avoid these sorts of unseen disruptions that will get in the way of your move and cause the cost to go up considerably. You will no doubt find that the quote is a lot higher than if you were to have a smooth sail on an hourly rate, but you are at least free of the fear of getting stuck in traffic and having to pay for the hours lost whilst waiting around. If you can work out the equivalent differences, then it should be absolutely fine to get a move underway without too much of a cost, but if you are not prepared than you may well run in to trouble!
